Notice - Killeagh 4 mile road race...Thurs 24th May 2018

This is the third year of this 4 mile race and it's organised by Killeagh Community Healthy Clubs Project in association with Youghal AC. It will be held this year on Thursday the 24th of May 2018 at 8pm.

Considering that Killeagh is on the N25 Cork-Waterford road, the race should have a pretty big catchment area.

As you can see from the course map below, the race takes in a loop to the west of Killeagh. The race finishes at the entrance to the Killeagh GAA grounds which is the race HQ. There will also be changing and shower facilities here.

Note from the organisers.....The race HQ is in Killeagh GAA complex, where we will have registration on the morning of race. There are great facilities there for changing, showers and catering afterwards. There is plenty on parking at the GAA grounds and there is a walk way through an estate to the start line.

We are happy to have our new sponsor Niall Guerin of Niall Guerin construction, NGC, come on board this year.

The race has AAI permit and is accurately measured by Jones Counter and will be chip timed.

There are prizes in all the age categories including a prize for breaking the course record
and loads of spot prizes as well with a great spread afterwards. There are also showers and changing facilities available and there is a walk taking place at 10am.
